Efforts for Peace Agreement in South Sudan Are Hopeful

Hopes were high for peace and stability in South Sudan when it gained its independence from Sudan in 2011, but shattered in 2013 with ethnic violence. The on-going civil war has wreaked havoc on the country. Both the government and the rebels have committed horrible atrocities. Children have been conscripted into the rebel army and forced to kill and rape. The constant conflict has disrupted the normal planting season causing widespread hunger. The U.N. envoy for South Sudan hopes "some form of agreement" will be signed on 16 February in Ethiopia where peace talks are underway.

The five-year civil war has become the world's fastest growing refugee crisis with 3:5 million fleeing their homes. Challenges ahead will be forming a transitional government and dealing with armed forces. However, negotiators are hopeful for real progress in bringing peace. Prayer warriors have been hard at work lifting up intercessory prayer for this predominantly Christian nation. "With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible" (The Bible, Matthew 19:26).

The nation of South Sudan is not on the 2018 Open Doors World Watch List of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world. Window International Network partners pray for South Sudan on Day 2 in accordance with the Praying Through the Window 9: Global Terrorism and World Religions prayer calendar.

Please pray for:
  • Successful peace negotiations and necessary concessions made by both sides to ensure stability for South Sudan (The Bible, Proverbs 16:7).

  • Christian Believers in South Sudan to continue in round the clock intercessory prayer for the peace of the nation (The Bible, Romans 8:26-27).

  • God to bring relief, forgiveness, and healing to the many children who were involved in the terrible atrocities they were forced to commit (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 1:3).
